    headset tube?

    is the headset tube the same height on a medium lefty as a xl lefty? asking because i am looking at a 140mm lefty off a xl to put on a 120 med.

    2009 or 2010 and up uses different sizes....anything before that is interchangeable...

    ok. so 2010 xl fork on a 2011 m will b different. would it matter to make up the space with steam spacers? The bike now has 2 10mm & 2 30mm spacers

    A XL lefty on a non XL frame will work, but it will not look as clean as a frame specific set up IMHO.

    yes i learned the xl is a 163mm (xl size) & the s to l is a 137.7mm (standard size). I passed on the fork. I was going to go lefty on my Fuji. But people say it may b a lighter fork over my reba, but the projesct321 kit adds 1.5lbs. so it will be more weight after conversion is complete.
